Focus on Shostakovich and Gubaidulina at Wien Modern 2016

Beginning this year, the artistic director of the festival Wien Modern is Bernhard Günther, who previously served as dramaturg for contemporary music with the Luxemburg Philharmonic. The subjects on which Wien Modern 2016 (30 October till 30 November) will focus are Sofia Gubaidulina and Dmitri Shostakovich.

At this year’s Wien Modern, the complete string quartets of Dmitri Shostakovich will be performed on one evening in the Great Hall of the Vienna Konzerthaus, played by 15 different quartet formations. In addition, chamber works of Sofia Gubaidulina will be performed at different concerts – primarily by members of the Klangforum Wien.
